The Brand Story

Machines are the heart of the business; sales and profits will follow after.

Helping customers save cost and time in operation is always at the top of the list of priorities for Shawn Lai, the Founder of AEC Machinery Hub - it is also the realization of his promise.

As a child, Shawn used to linger around his father's factory. His father was a traditional agricultural machine reseller who was always busy helping his customers with different kinds of services. After a long day of work, his father always sat alone in a corner to rest. Little Shawn would look on quietly, waiting for his father to gain back his energy before returning back home for dinner.

At that point in time, Shawn didn’t understand why his father would put himself through such tiresome torment. Fearing that it was more than his father could take, he asked one day: “You are already so busy and exhausted, why do you still trouble yourself taking care of the machines for so many customers”?

His father answered him gently, “Son, if the clients have workable and merchantable machines, it also means they can run their business smoothly, earn their profit, and support their families!”

This answer planted a great determination in Shawn’s heart.

“I want to design and create great machines that not only can run but also to make people smile and appreciate it too. In AEC, all our machines are designed to problem-solve, help our clients reduce their production cost and time, and increase their productivity and profit. I am applying my creativity, profession, experiences, and my sincerity in our machines, which help clients to save cost, earn more money and to have a better family life.”

Today, AEC Machinery Hub is one of the leading machine manufacture, service, and retail chains, providing one-stop machinery solutions in Malaysia.

Our secret? A passionate team that committed to deliver a cost-and-time-saving, yet high yielding and profitable life to every client that comes to us.
